October 17, 2009

Numex Suave Orange was developed by New Mexico State University's Chile Pepper Institute, to have a chili similar to Habanero Orange but milder.

DryerLike all Chinense, the Numex Suave Orange can be dried in a ventilated place, or with a dryer.

This powder can also be prepared with Habanero chilies, getting a very hot powder.
